Thank you for bringing him up. The smaller weight divisions aren't my focus, so I forgot about him. Seeing Mares performance in his most recent fight made me happy. That was some good swarming.

Yes, I can see why you would say Bradley swarms. He's versatile and can fight at a variety of ranges. His swarming alone doesn't stand out.

The swarmer tag is far too specialized to give it to Khan. He's a brawler or puncher with the handspeed and proportions to masquerade as a boxer-puncher.

pacquiao can barely fight inside, struggles to cut off the ring, and doesn't apply a steady pressure. Ambush fighters are too in and out.

When I say swarmer I mean

Henry Armstrong
Joe Frazier
Mike Tyson
JCC
Duran

One can still be a pressure fighter or applying pressure without being a swarmer (examples: LaMotta and Alvarez).

The essence of swarming is constant pressure executed at closer quarters. They know how to cut off the ring, love to work the body, often have great stamina and chin, etc.

The Baby Bull was a swarmer, and quite good at it too.
